Jack London District Association
The Jack London District of Oakland has a long and rich heritage. Encompassing more than seventy blocks along the Estuary, it is the site of much of Oakland's earliest history. Today, the district is one of the hottest locations for development in the East Bay. In addition to hundreds of apartments, condos and loft conversions built in the past few years, more than 300 new condos are under construction or in advanced planning in the district. A $300 million, 15-year redevelopment of Jack London Square is also under way. In order to ensure that development meets the needs of current and future residents and business owners, the Jack London District Association (JLDA) was formed in April 2005 as a non-profit organization and was awarded 501(c)(3) non-profit status in July 2006.
